CONTAINS NEW SPECIALLY PREPARED LINER NOTES BY PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ'S WRITER BRIAN MORTON AND BY PARIS' PRESTIGIOUS JAZZ MAGAZINE

“The idea of an LP as a single aesthetic unit, pioneered by Frank Sinatra and a few others, was still relatively new at the time. Not the least of Coltrane’s achievements was to harness the long player’s potential and to give it near-perfect, lastingly satisfying content. This is one of the great modern records.” - Penguin Guide to Jazz

“Since its release in 1960, the fascination with Giant Steps has never wavered. This is a true masterpiece that should be in everyone’s collection.” - Jazz Magazine
